just a sketchbook, not a storybook
Don't expect anything to happen. This is a sketchbook of characters that really might have been used in action-driven stories but are just left there fairly motionless. Not the masterpiece it is purported to be, sad to say.

Classic story collection and very good recordings
The recordings in this collection are generally excellent -- the sound quality is high; the readings are very clear and subtle and thoughtful. Hugh McGuire's reading of "The Dead" is a standout.
I believe most of the readers are American, due to copyright restrictions. Some have Irish accents or use Irish accents as appropriate; they sound pretty good to my ear, but I speak from total ignorance of accents.
